just to state a fact about the boards getting pulled from here from john barlow.two people placed a veto vote on it and that was robert hunter and john barlow the REST of the band voted for it getting them off the site.barlow also wrote the whole idea was started by the beating of the two drums...hint hint.bobby said something stupid like everyone has in their lifetime.all these shows are available at torrent sites and they are aware of that,they didn't just want the one stop download shop is all.by the way my friend was in hong kong a month ago a came across over a hundred dead shows in sbd quality with the actual text files and reviews from the archive pasted on the back of the cd cover selling for thirty dollars a show.food for thought.

Look: Archive was picked on as it had more shows than any other site and they were always available. My understanding is that quite a few shows got out under the radar. That--and the mastering of these tapes rivals what the Dead could do. If you got a good copy of a sb, you might buy the upgrade. But if you got a Charlie Miller--whoosh.

Archive posts the number of downloads per show. When 15,000 people have downloaded a particular show--who is left to buy a copy?

ShnFlac, etc., host shows only as long as someone is seeding them. It's closer to the trading ideal the band sanctioned--internet sharing as opposed to a repository that came to rival the vault itself.

How many folks didn't buy 3 from the Vault or the Cow Palace release because they already had a copy?

Finally, it is not your God givn right to download someone else's intellectual property. That is up to them. You are not entitled to said material because you say you are or because of some offhand Jerry comment. There were quite a few other guys in this band, and not all of them favored the idea in the first place. The fact that these exist are available is a wonderous thing that should not be lambasted. I'm surprised that the band didn't jump on it much sooner--before the number of sbs and dls got so high. There is a difference between file sharing and downloading show after show after show with no limits.

Be grateful that they were ever here at all--and that you can still stream quite a few.

i didnt buy either one - got both in nice quality which i guess proves their point

still wont as long as etree lives - screw them

gave enough money for over 15 years

paid my dues

again - i dont blame them for pulling the boards here - but this was just a drop in the bucket - not a dime more from me -



edit - barring some live shows from the rat and phil

The biggest problem anyone can encounter is trying to get that proverbial horse back into the corral or the milk back into Bessie.
